Minimally invasive procedures are highly effective when performed by well trained surgeons. However, with the subjective nature of surgical training and performance assessment, it is difficult to determine when a trainee surgeon has attained a satisfactory level of competency. We propose a computer-based training and performance assessment system where we apply configuration space based techniques to determine optimal paths for the maneuver of surgical instruments to perform predefined tasks
